Our First Year students enjoyed a fun afternoon of Halloween themed games, activities and treats to celebrate their first term as Maryfield Girls. Well done to all on participating with such enthusiasm. Thanks so much to all those who helped to set up the Sports Hall and in particular to the Sixth Year prefects who ran the afternoon for the First Years. What a lovely way to start the mid-term break. 🎃👻
Maryfield can be very proud of its seventeen representatives who recently attended the Poetry Aloud Competition in The National Library. Four places were awarded to successful participants to go through to the semi-finals and Maryfield secured two of these places. The successful students were Aoife Kehoe and Sara Coogan. Congratulations to the other fifteen students who articulated flawlessly from memory two poems from the Library’s prescribed anthologies of poetry. Already we are looking forward to the semi-finals in November. Thank you to all students and staff for their support and for making this event so successful.

Our 5th Year students enjoyed a fantastic bonding day at Avon Rí Adventure Centre in Blessington. With 5th Year students progressing either directly from 3rd Year or via Transition Year, it is important that the students get an opportunity to know each other and to identify with their new year-group. The students threw themselves enthusiastically into the wide variety of activities on offer, enjoying the beautiful October weather and the magnificent scenery. New friendships were formed and old ones consolidated. Undoubtedly, this was a very positive and enjoyable experience for all involved.
